Sampson's Hollow is a panoramic location for a vintage-inspired wedding in a classic, but rustic setting. Our family and staff have been hosting weddings and special events for over 13 years. Our coordinators go the extra mile for you. Do you love the vision of a Smoky Mountain wedding with rolling hills, flowering meadows, blue mist on the mountains, in a peaceful hollow? Our property provides all of those photo opportunities and more. Do you worry about a back-up plan in case of bad weather? We have one. Are you concerned that your guests enjoy the amenities and atmosphere of the property that you choose? That is important to us as well. We believe in the traditions of southern hospitality. Please plan to visit Sampson’s Hollow and allow us to customize a package just for you.
Surrounded by sweeping vistas, the farmland has been in the family since the mid-1800s. Easily accessible from the main highway, which leads to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the farm is a tranquil setting for couples seeking to get married in the midst of nature.

This was by far the best venue that I could ever ask for! Before I met my husband, I knew that this was the place I was going to get married at. It had everything I could ever ask for! It was in the most beautiful part of the smokies which allowed rolling hills and mountains to be the view. The property was absolutely breathtaking! I would highly recommend Sampson's Hollow to any one getting married! They have multiple packages that fit each individual Bride and Groom's needs! Every member of the staff was VERY friendly and made sure our wedding was perfect! Every need was met with Sampson's!Sent on 10/15/2018

Hidden gem in the foothills of the Smokys
Absolutely wonderful venue and place for a wedding or event. Everything from the beautiful surroundings and view, the staff, the attention to detail - everything - perfect! We held my daughter's wedding in January and they were prepared for all types of weather. The outdoor options as well as covered and indoor options accomodated the ceremony and reception perfectly. Our wedding coordinator Idamae was on top of every detail. The staff was attentive to things before we could even think to ask. Food was wonderful! You can't find a more caring staff and inclusive venue to host a wedding. We highly recommend anyone planning a wedding or event to do yourself a favor and visit Sampson's Hollow. You will not be disappointed!

I am a wedding photographer, Sampson's Hollow is truly beautiful and I loved photographing a wedding there last fall. Feel free to contact me if you would like to see a few photos! :)
Sampson's Hollow is one of the most beautiful and accommodating venues in the Knoxville area. And I have to say that the staff and on site Wedding Coordinator is probably the most hard working and friendly people you will meet. During the time for portraits and around sunset they will even take you around to the best places on the property to photograph in their Golf Cart. Very easy to work with and my Brides have had nothing but good things to say about their Weddings at Sampson's Hollow. If you want a nice rustic wedding and beautiful scenic hills, this is the place you need to be. And the windflowers that grow there in the summer months are amazing.
Very private place to have a wedding. It is in a beautiful location and away from the crowds.
